Have you ever felt the need to create a new word?

able to be engaged. This leads to the term 'Engageability' on a screen,
meaning that it is (or is not or will be) able to be engaged. The screen
could show "Ability to be engaged' or 'Able to be engaged' but there is
limited room and we are stuck with 'Engageability'.
